73% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc from premium selected vineyards in the renowned Gimblett Gravels area of Hawkes Bay.
Meticulously managed, hand-harvested and fermented individually and blended to produce a wine that is a unique canvas of its place. The best parcels of selected fruit are hand harvested and destemmed with fermentation in closed top French cuves. Maturation in 45% new French oak barriques for 19 months.
Deep darkest red. Complex aromatic profile with notes of ripe plum, cassis, dried rose and spice from the finest French Oak. The wine exhibits a wonderful depth of dark red fruits whilst maintaining an enticing level of freshness across the palate. Layered, youthful and persistent, this is a classically composed wine.
